Hi Cynthia,

In answer to your query, what about a trip to Ostia Antica? This is a good day trip. You can catch a train from the Pyramid station; the journey takes about 1/2 hour. Ostia is a great site (I like it better than Pompeii). You should have no problem with safety, as Ostia is well away from the main tourist areas and is not that much visited. I am not sure what you do about food while there, as we have always taken a picnic lunch. I am sure you can buy drinks at the site, and there will be a restaurant near the train station. If you want any further information, just email me at awa
